Lay's Eagle of the United States

2020 Texas General Land Office Holiday Ornament

Lay’s Eagle of the United States is the fifth ornament produced by the Texas General Land Office Save Texas History Program. It was inspired by Amos Lay’s Map of the United States, which features an elaborate cartouche comprised of several nationalistic elements, most notably the eagle carrying a banner in its beak with the United States’ motto, “E Pluribus Unum.” The eagle’s outstretched wings cover a globe marked “North America.”
